This is a photograph from a visit by my savior, Nicholas Winton, to Cesky Krumlov. I?ve met up with Nicky and his wife Greta many times already, and it's always been an extraordinarily nice encounter. Sir Nicholas Winton has received many honors and distinctions. He's had books written and films made about him, one feature film and several documentaries. All that I can add to all of that for myself, is my deepest gratitude for the blessing that with my white hair and approaching 9th decade of life, I'm able to count myself amongst the "children" of the bravest and most capable, kindest and wisest - and at the same time most modest person of our time.
